Viva Tequila!

Move over Margarita. Mexico's native agave spirit is starring in an array of classic and contemporary cocktails. Here are 10 of our favorites.

 

 

And to All a Good Night

This warming cocktail makes a great digestif. To balance the spiciness, try using a sweeter bourbon, such as Maker's Mark.

 

Café de la Mañana

Tequila-spiked coffee? You betcha! This coffee cocktail from The Saint Social Club in Seattle, is perfect for livening up an ordinary cup of joe.

 

Corzo Holly

Reposado tequila blends beautifully with fresh strawberries, lime, basil and balsamic vinegar in this springtime sipper.

 

El Diablo

This classic is an exercise in delicious simplicity.

 

La Perla

The deep fruitiness of a reposado tequila meets the richness of an elegant pear liqueur, with the delicate flavor of manzanilla tying the ingredients together.

 

Paloma

If you're looking for something that's a little different than a Margarita but just as refreshing, this Mexican cooler has you covered.

 

Rosita

This slightly bitter cocktail shows how complex a cocktail can be, even when it’s made with fairly basic ingredients.

 

Spicy Watermelon Margarita

With the crisp sweetness of watermelon and the spicy kick of serrano chile, this is a delicious way to dress up a classic Margarita recipe for summertime.

 

Tabard Cocktail

This sophisticated sipper is aptly named after the classic D.C. hotel that has the drink on its bar menu.

 

Tijuana Trick

Sunny Los Angeles gets some south-of-the-border inspiration in this bright and citrusy reposado cocktail.
